Mike Kiley Forest Preserve

This 35 acres restored riparian forest and wetland borders the Mississinewa River. This preserve is an excellent spot to view birds, deer and other wildlife.

The mowed trails of this preserve twist through the prairie with benches ideal for wildlife observation located throughout. The trail is adjacent to the forested section buffering the Mississinewa River, but there is no river access.

The preserve is dedicated to Mike J. Kiley, who was not only a Marion judge and attorney, but also served on the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Board for 27 years working for conservation in Indiana.

Visitors should note that after rainfall, the trails will be soft or temporarily submerged in water.
